HOW AM I SO LATE to the Spotify game. Goodness, what a game changer! It makes my music game so much stronger and all I have to do it click some buttons. Lazy music discoveries means more time for the real work: eating, reading, and of course painting!
My favourite feature is the “Discover Weekly” function where it introduces you to a list of songs that the algorithm assumes (correctly) that you’ll like. This week I fell in love with Sofia de la Torre’s song “Flex Your Way Out of Here”, Jessie Reyez’s “Figures” and FLETCHER’s “Wasted Youth” plus so so SO many more. I’m overwhelmed. These jams (plus many other newly discovered anthems) have definitely guided my work these past few weeks. Smooth application, bold colours, chaotic organic shapes. The playlist kind of served as dual purpose: one as art inspiration and the other as real life distraction/avoider of powerful April into May showers. The results are some of my favourites and they are this beautiful little snap shot summary of my week with this mucky transition to spring.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and I’ll just leave you here with some lyrics to carry you into Saturday.
FLETCHER “Wasted Youth”
“It's my life
If I'm gonna waste it
Gonna waste it on you.”
Interpret as you will.
